We received a really interesting Tyrannosaurus Rex puzzle from Enlivenze LLC. David’s Webelos Resident Camp had a Jurassic Park theme so I thought getting the trex puzzle would go great with what we did this summer.
This FipStir puzzle was different that any puzzle we had done before. Truthfully, I was a little intimidated. I had no idea how I was going to shake it and make the pieces go where they needed to be. I am very “Rubics Cube challenged” and could never get more than a few pieces where they needed to be. I put on a brave face for my kids and tried it. It was fun! I actually solved it! But not by just shaking it!
I first got the pieces to all lay down and not be jumbled.
Then I started moving the pieces with the stick to get them in the right order.
See that little foot on the stick? That helped me move just the piece I wanted to the place it needed to go. I don’t think I’d be able to do with without it!
I was worried that it would stress me out, but it was relaxing. Even my not-so-patient children sat and arranged the whole puzzle until it was done. I was very impressed and they were quite proud of themselves. I didn’t tell them how to do it or show them how I did it and they solved it the same way I did.
We really enjoyed this puzzle, this one was a Level 1. Enlienze makes other versions too:
FlipStir Puzzles are $24.95 each.
